PRIVACY POLICY

Aikwood Tower respects your privacy and is committed to protecting the personal information that you share with us. Generally, you can browse through our website without giving us any information about yourself. When we do need your personal information to provide services that you request or when you choose to provide us with your personal information, this policy describes how we collect and use your personal information.

Information collection

Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, a home, postal or other physical address, other contact information, title, birth date, gender, occupation, industry, personal interests and other information when needed to provide a service you requested.

We don't automatically collect personal information, including your email address. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our website you visit and how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address to any personal information. Like many other commercial websites, Aikwood Tower website may use a standard technology called a "cookie" to collect information about how you use the site.

Aikwood Tower collects personal information when you register with Aikwood Tower for an account with Aikwood Tower, when you use certain products or services of Aikwood Tower, when you register to attend a seminar or participate in an online survey, when you ask to be included in an email or other mailing list, or you submit an entry for a sweepstake or other promotions, or when you submit your personal information to Aikwood Tower for any other reason. From time to time, Aikwood Tower receives personal information from business partners and vendors. Aikwood Tower only uses such information if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable privacy practices consistent with this Policy and applicable laws.

Notice

When personal information is collected, we will inform you at the point of collection the purpose for the collection. Aikwood Tower will not transfer your personal information to third parties without your consent, except under the limited conditions described under the discussion entitled "Information sharing and disclosure" below.

If you choose to provide us with your personal information, we may only transfer that information, within Aikwood Tower or to Aikwood Tower's third party service providers with your permission. Upon receiving your permission, we may transfer your information across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world.

We will always give you the opportunity to "opt out" of receiving direct marketing or market research information. This means we assume you have given us your consent to collect and use your information in accordance with this Policy unless you take affirmative action to indicate that you do not consent, for instance by clicking or checking the appropriate option or box at the point of collection. In some cases, when applicable, we will provide you with the opportunity to "opt in." This means we will require your affirmative action to indicate your consent before we use your information for purposes other than the purpose for which it was submitted.

How we use your collected information

Aikwood Tower uses information for several general purposes: to fulfil your requests for certain products and services; to personalise your experience on our website; to keep you up to date on the latest service announcements, special offers or other information we think you'd like to hear about either from us or from our business partners; and to better understand your needs and provide you with better services. We may also use your information to send you, or to have our business partners send you, direct marketing information or contact you for market research.

Your personal information is never shared outside Aikwood Tower without your permission, except under conditions explained below.

Aikwood Tower may send your personal information to other companies or people under any of the following circumstances: when we have your consent to share the information; we need to share your information to provide the product or service you have requested; we need to send the information to companies who work on behalf of Aikwood Tower to provide a product or service to you (we will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose); or we want to keep you up to date on the latest product announcements, software updates, special offers or other information we think you'd like to hear about either from us or from our business partners (unless you have opted out of these types of communications).
